Dr Deepak Ravindran
11th January 2020
I have been under Dr Deepak's care for the last six years and have always felt valued, respected, and cared for.
Dr Deepak explains how the symptoms of my chronic pain impact on my body, why (in such a way as anyone an understand the miriad of complex workings of the human mind and body) it impacts my body, and how the lidocaine infusions help me, without any of the medical language that so easily confuses patients.
His bedside manner is polite, friendly, easy-going and I find it easy to trust him, despite fearing needles. In the twelve infusions he has performed on me, he has
inserted the needle in the back of my hand gently and with minimum discomfort.
He's never failed to insert the needle correctly on the first try (unfortunately other medical professionals have often failed here).
As a result of the infusions he has performed and guided me through I am on a steady track to stop taking daily oral medications and my quality of life and every aspect of it has improved significantly.
My first eleven infusions were via our brilliant but battered NHS and the thirteenth with him was privately done. His care in both is consistent and reassuring in both hospitals.
I can't offer improvements here for Dr Deepak, it does seem that excellence is as standard with him. I'm functioning almost to the same level I was before becoming ill with a long-term, cure-less condition a decade ago now, and that's thanks to a regime of infusions that Dr Deepak has performed, explained, and carefully guided me through. Put simply he's given me the winning ticket to a 'pin relief' lottery and for that I am exceptionally grateful!
